Elon Musk led SpaceX has plans to partner with Indian companies to locally manufacture satellite communications equipment including antenna systems and user terminal devices.
SpaceX is in fact gearing to roll out its high-speed satellite broadband services in India next year. The Director of SpaceX Matt Botwin revealed that the company is excited to partner with India to manufacture products for its Starlink devices.
He emphasised that SpaceX is always on the lookout for opportunities in order to maximise the efficiency of its supply chain across the globe. According to him, “SpaceX is now looking forward to working with its partners in India to recognise those opportunities.”
This statement was made during the first official interaction with Telecom Secretary Anshu Prakash. Matt Botwin also revealed that SpaceX was working with the Indian industrial sector for quite some time as they used to buy steel and steel tubing for its rockets.
